Tanning Salons in Milpitas

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.

Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

Though Casual Cuts flaunts its hairdos in its name, the staff styles more than just hair. They offer services that cover the entire body, from facial threading that leaves brows sculpted to mani-pedis that prepare feet for sandal season, which in parts of Alaska, for example, spans from July 4th to later in the day on July 4th. For the real estate between head and feet, they can wax away unwanted hair or airbrush skin to create an even tan.

Enveloped in a warm, tawny-hued interior, Willow Glen Tanning's team has cultivated a spectrum of healthy skin tones since daybreak on the new millennium. The staff greets new customers with a skin-analysis questionnaire, which can help determine the most effective method for creating a base tan or for downgrading a sports competitor's silver trophy. Among the salon's tanning equipment, six UV beds re-create the sun's handiwork with medium- or high-pressure technology, which relies on UV-B rays to kickstart the production of skin-darkening melanin or UV-A rays to deepen an existing tan. Also geared toward customized color, sunless spray tanning is performed by an airbrush technician equipped with organic, aloe-vera-enriched bronzer, or by an automated Mystic Tan spray booth, which puts four shades of bronzing formulas at the client's fingertips. Spray treatments can be augmented with red-light-therapy sessions, which stimulate collagen production to firm and rejuvenate skin from the inside out.

The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.

At Beach Club Tanning, 14 rooms play host to tanning beds, UV and UV-free spray booths, and custom airbrush sessions. Five levels of tanning beds deliver the desired level of bronze, and are kept in tip-top shape thanks to an onsite trained factory tanning-bed technician. In addition to gilding services, Beach Club Tanning helps shed inches and wedged inner tubes with the fat-busting Fit body wrap, and boosts collagen production with red-light-skin-rejuvenation-booth sessions.

Haute Tan Airbrush Tanning’s trained and certified airbrush technicians immerse skin of all hues in plumes of gentle bronzing mist. Rather than subject customers to mechanized tanning booths, their steady hands spritz skin evenly to prevent streaks and splotches. The bronzing boutique also stocks a collection of swimsuits to complement burnished bodies as they strut through sand or frolic through neighbors’ sprinklers.
